This is his first book.


"[An] actually fair and balanced, carefully documented biography."--Jacob Weisberg, The New York Times Book Review

"The book excels at compiling data establishing Ailes's control freakishness and authoritarian nature. . . . A veteran of the New York media-reporting scene, Sherman nails the Fox News palace intrigue and brings to light interactions that Ailes clearly never wanted to go public."--Erik Wemple, The Washington Post

"[An] enormously entertaining new biography."--The New Republic

"A thoroughly reported look behind that curtain . . . Part of the reason [Ailes] and his allies have campaigned against the book is not because it is false, but because it tells a true story."--David Carr, The New York Times

"Sherman is at his best writing with sweep about the history of cable news and placing Ailes in context."--Los Angeles Times

"[An] eye-opening biography of the would-be political kingmaker and Fox News mastermind . . . A well-reported, engaging book. A bonus: Bill O'Reilly won't like it, either. Politics and media junkies, on the other hand, will have a field day."--Kirkus Reviews
